Quick Note on October

Hi There!

As most people know, October is breast cancer awareness month. Early detection plays a huge part in helping save lives, so I encourage each of you to reach out to your loved ones (mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, friends, etc.) and talk to them about mammograms and breast self exams. In the Women's Center, we have information in our resource binder on where to receive low or no cost mammograms for the underinsured. Feel free to stop in and pick up some info.
